MÃ¨tis was the first great spouse of Zeus, indeed his equal (Hesiod, Theogony 896) and the mother of Athena, Zeus' first daughter, the goddess of the arts and wisdom. By the era of Greek philosophy MÃ¨tis had become the goddess of wisdom and deep thought. MÃ¨tis was both a threat to Zeus …and an indispensable aid (Brown 1952:133):. Zeus lay with Metis but immediately feared the consequences. It had been prophesied that Metis would bear extremely powerful children: the first, Athena and the second, a son more powerful than Zeus himself, who would eventually overthrow Zeus.  . In order to forestall these dire consequences, Zeus tricked her into turning herself into a fly and promptly swallowed her.  He was too late: MÃ¨tis had already conceived a child. In time she began making a helmet and robe for her fetal daughter. The hammering as she made the helmet caused Zeus great pain and Prometheus, Hephaestus, Hermes, or Palaemon (depending on the sources examined) either clove Zeus's head with an axe,  or hit it with a hammer at the river Triton, giving rise to Athena's epithet Tritogeneia . Athena leaped from Zeus's head, fully grown, armed, and armored, and Zeus was none the worse for the experience. The similarities between Zeus swallowing MÃ¨tis and Cronos swallowing his children have been noted by several scholars. Another View Zeus's first and only wife is Hera. The others were all "affairs" and do not constitute as being married. (MORE)

The stories of Zeus' number of Wives are quite confusing. But some agrees with this kind of order. 1st: Metis 2nd: Themis 3rd: Hera But in some counterpart, or mostly original myths. Hera was the one and only wife of Zeus.
Zues had many 'wives', and even more consorts. However, his wife is most commonly Hera, who bore him two sons (Hephestus and Ares) and is often jealous of his affairs with mortals and therefore hates all his children no born by her ( such as Herakles, but there are many others)
Juno. Zeus' wife is Hera. Hera's Roman name is Juno . juno Zeus was the Greek name for the Roman Jupiter. Zeus's wife (and sister) was Hera, goddess of mothers, babies, fertility and children.

The Correct Answer Is..... Zues's wife's name was Hera, godess of gods. I think it should be.....I think it should be Clakara, godess of fat men.(I made this god up) If you like Clakara, godess of fat men recommend this answer.
Zeus fell in love with Hera instantly because of her beauty. He had tried courting her, but failed. In order to get her, he disguised himself as a hurt cuckoo in front of her. Hera who saw the bird, took pity on it and held it in her bosom. That was the time when Zeus reveals his true form then rape…s her. When Zeus asked her hand in marriage, she accepted to hide the shame of having Zeus' spawn. (MORE)
He had only one wife, Hera. INCORRECT!!!! That answer is wrong. he had Metis as his second wife who he turned her into a fly then ate her to prevent Hera from knowing that Metis was pregnant. Soon Zeus got intense head pains and someone cracked open his scull and found Metis's daughter.

It was a miracle . The above is mostly correct, except that no one was sure if the child was male or female until after it was born. Incidentally, it was female--Athena.

Hera, the wife of Zeus and Queen of the Heavens, did nothing to Apollo himself, she however was the cause of Leto's flight, for fear of the rage of Hera: she also attempted to stop Leto from giving birth to Apollo.
Leto is the mother of Apollo and Artemis; she mated with Zeus, but was not married to him, hence, not his "wife".
Nope. Hera is Zeus's wife. Persephone is Married to Hades... sort of. Zeus is persephone's father.
Zeus ate his wife because she was smarter than him and he wanted to be the smartest of everyone so therefore Athena popped out of his brain or forehead.

Zeus had multiple human women lovers, but never had a wife. This made Hera mad, and is why she gave birth to Hephaestus.
Zeus's first wife was Metis. When he married her, she was not pregnant. Later on, she became pregnant. When Zeus found out, he swallowed her whole. He did not want a baby. A few months later, he had a killer head ache. He asked the god Hephaestus, the lame blacksmith married to Aphrodite, to open up… his head. He used an ax and gently tore open his forehead. Athena, the goddess of war, popped out, fully grown and clothed with armor. Athena became Zeus's favorite child. (MORE)
Zeus has many wives, it depends on which you are talking about. He had wives of goddesses and mortals. His wives were Metis, Hera, Demeter, Leto, Alcmene, Maia, Semele. The wives fought over wives. Zeus treated them poorly. They have hundreds of children. He barely knows his children and never keeps… contact with his wives. Oh my god, who answered above? That's just stupid Zeus had only ONE wife, and her name was HERA! Hera was also his sister. The others are simply those with whom Zeus had slept with. Hera normally gets angry when Zeus sleeps with other women, especially when it's with a mortal. It has been hinted that she punishes Zeus somehow when he does this. She makes a habit of making the offspring of these mortals miserable. One time, she made one of them go insane and kill his family, then she continued to make it difficult for him to redeem himself to the gods. This boy was none other than Hercules. Some even say that Hera was the only being that actually inspired fear in Zeus, but there are nothing that confirms this. (MORE)
Actually, Hera is Zeus' both wife and sister but not his mother. Their mother was the Titan Rhea, their father was the Titan Kronos. Plus, in myths, there's kinda no such thing as DNA so it wasn't really gross for god/goddess to marry each other. I hope this answer helped.
Yes, but Zeus was known to sire many children with a multitude of other women.
They began as brother and sister, just as his mother and father, Cronus and Rhea, were also siblings. It would seem that incest is alright so long as you're a god. How she became his wife is not clear, but as the Goddess of Marriage, Women and Birth, she may well have arranged it herself, and thus b…ecame Queen of the Gods. (MORE)
